Had a look at the Plymouth too - both great models. I assume you've built models of other things besides cars to have arrived at this level of expertise. Very nice work.

Wow!   Stunning!  AMT's kit I assume?  You took the time to remove the molded in wipers and add kit ones.  Which ones did you use?  Stellar.  What are the colors?


Excellent photography as well.

You guys, from across the pond, either have allot of time, or are extremely talented. Either way, I appreciate the quality of this build. Beautiful work :D  :lol:

Thank you all.

I’ve been making models for many years, mainly aircraft.

Wipers are made by myself.

Color is:

  • Silver:  Motip spray
  • transparent blue:  Gunze C50
  • Clear:  Gunze GX100

Antena is made of medical needles.

 

I’ll put some photos from the construction, soon.

Great build. Love the paint job and details. This put the car on my build list. Gotta have one of these.

Bardzo dobry! The antenna is an excellent detail and looks just right. My brother almost bought one of these back around 1979. We test drove it together and I loved it. 

 

Now I have to go look as the Plymouth.

Your model car photography is the most strikingly beautiful I have ever seen. Could you please describe your technique. I also really like your Cougar.
